PRESS Ratings and Reviews
While many people may have a difficult t ...
While many people may have a difficult time viewing steak as an exciting dinner item, when compared to fancy chef-created food, my wife and I were amazed and in complete agreement that the ribeye and New York strip steaks were the best steaks we had ever eaten.
Everyone in the area was watching the fi ...
Everyone in the area was watching the final NBA game, so we had an unusually quiet dinner. The quality of the food was excellent, but my expensive entree of Copper River Salmon was no more than 4 ounces, cooked. Perhaps they should have used a dessert plate, so the portion would not have looked so small. Meanwhile the waiter proceeded to serve the wine so quickly that the bottle was empty before the entrees arrived. No agenda there to jack up the bill with extra bottles of wine? No, surely not. Well my experience at Press this time was unsettling, but our guests enjoyed themselves. I will end on that positive note.
Very good steak, no argument there. How ...
Very good steak, no argument there. However, the portions are huge (no steak less than 8 oz on the menu, which I think is unrealistic, in this day and age). But we were willing to accept that the steak might be a bit big. However, everything being a la carte, there are side dishes to be ordered, which are also HUGE. The potato cake was delicious but could have served 3 easily (the server did tell us it was enough for 2). Needless to say, having another side of vegetables (spinach - also very good -) became just way, way too much. My companion was enticed into ordering the chocolate souffle, but for this, the server gave no indication that it could (read: should) be enough for 2. It was also huge. The result is that we finished only about half of our food and had to simply send the leftovers away because we were travelling (as I'm sure many guests are) so couldn't take a doggy bag. I hate wasting good food (not to mention $$!).

As usual Press was fantastic. Most notable from this experience was the knowledge of the sommelier. We told her what we wanted and her recommendations were spot on.

Everything on the menu is mouth-watering fantastic! Tyler was our server and did a phenomenal job. Attention to detail was very evident in their dishes and the care they took to provide an amazing experience. This was the restaurant we visited on the last night of our stay in Napa Valley and while all the restaurants were fantastic, this one by far was our favorite!

My wife and I chose the PRESS to celebrate my 50th birthday. A very good selection! We both selected the tasting menu for - in my opinion - a very reasonable price; in addition I took the recommended wine pairings. Apart from two courses the menu was outstanding. The swordfish was overseasoned and the hangar steak seasoning was so rich that a side dish like mashed potatoes would have been a good idea as compensation for this richness - even for a tastting menu. Furthermore the selection of the marshmallow as main part of the dessert is worth to discuss. It is really brave to provide such a dessert and indeed for me it was fantastic, but not everyone likes marshmallows - e.g. my wife - and I would not integrate it in a menu. However this is complaining on very high level. In total the menu was somewhere between very good and outstanding. Now the wine pairings. All selected wines were very, very good. And indeed in most cases the wine pairing idea was outstanding. However the selection of an Equipo Navazos as pairing for the corn & mushroom bisque is debatable. This pairing works only if you do not take a sip directly after the bisque. Due to the flavoring you have to wait approx. 15 seconds before taking the sip. In that case the heat of the sherry merges wonderfully with the disappearing flavors of the bisque. This is clearly the job of the sommelier to explain to the patron. But again: Complaining on high level. We were the first time at the PRESS. And we will definitely come back. The PRESS people in total were very friendly and helpful. Perhaps the sommelier could be a little bit more responding to the customer. Especially due to the approach of the PRESS as a Californian wine sustainer.

I return to the Press after a two year hiatus. The service was very good, but the food was mediocre for the expensive price point. Not the food experience I had few years back. There's plenty of great places to eat in Yountville for half the price. Sorry I was expecting to be impressed, but tasting quality just fell short on just about every dish we ordered.
One of my Faves!
PRESS never disappoints. It is my go-to special occasion restaurant and we've been dining there for several years now. The food is amazing and the wine list is formidable (and offers an abundance of variety). It is perfect for a romantic evening out (request a one of the tables in the back under the clock) and arrive just as dusk is upon you. Did I mention that the food is amazing? I'm partial to the petite filet and truffle mac n' cheese, but I can honestly say I've never been disappointed with my selections (or those of my guests). PRESS is the place you go when you need the evening to be perfect and you don't to worry about the food, the service, or the ambiance. It is a quality dining experience that will have you planning your next reservation on your way out (hmmm, surely we can always find something to celebrate?).
Great Dinner, Superb Win List
This is our 2nd trip to PRESS. The first time we sat outside and it was a great ambiance, wonderful service and outstanding food. This time we sat inside and enjoyed our meal every bit as much. My only quibble is the service both times seemed to lack a sense of humor, professional to be sure but seemed a bit self-important. This is really a nice spot. Do yourself a favor and enjoy something from their awesome wine list.

Wonderful wine list
If you are in the Napa Valley there should be a restaurant dedicated to the wines of that region. Press fills that need beautifully. First the dinner service was friendly and insightful and the food tasty and well prepared. I was happy with both the dinner service and the food. The sommelier was quite knowledgable and helped me select and excellent Napa cab to go with dinner
Grear time and great wine
We had a wonderful dinner. While the menu is somewhat limited for food, the wine list is very extensive. The customer service and ambiance was very nice as well. We would done here again!

It was our first time there and we found the food to be "excellent" and the service was top notch. We will most likely go there again when we return to the Napa area. We will also recommend it to our family and friends to go there as well.
Rarely are we wowed by a restaurant. PRESS is a Wow. From exceptional steaks, flawless wine recommendations (with lots of local winery surprises), to some of the yummiest side dishes and starters ever, we absolutely loved our PRESS dining experience ... the 2 hours flew by.

In a region which has an over abundant supply of quality restaurants Press certainly stands out. While best known for their steaks the diversity of the menu is inviting for a variety of palates and the quality is outstanding across the board. The staff is as professional as you would anticipate for a restaurant of this caliber and very knowledgeable. The dining room has an inviting feel as you first enter although the noise level is consistent with the strong vibe. That and the price point make it less than ideal for a first date but a great option for that special occasion romantic dinner with a long time companion.

A phenomenal experience for the filet, but other choices such as a beet-strawberry gazpacho were outstanding as well. Intimate dining on the patio in the back and enjoyed after dinner drinks by the fire.
Top Steak House
As usual the food and service were super. Server especially attentive. Wine list is the best.
Most expensive dinner in a long time
We regularly dine out at top notch establishments on the East Coast but the prices at Press surprised us. A $57 steak that was average at best with gristle running through it and plated with a small pile of frisée was not what we expected. Everything is ala carte and the wine list is expensive so the total price runs up quickly. Definitely not worth the price. Would not go back. There are many other wonderful restaurants in Napa and Sonoma.
Press was OK.
Everything was done well. Service was top-notch. Just wasn't blown away by the food - not like steakhouses of NYC and Chicago . Press is mostly about steak. Also tried the salmon and that was a big miss. Slighty funny taste, small portion that was overdone for $42. Avoid that one. With wine $160/pp. I guess these are the prices in the Valley.
Attentive to the details
Was in St. Helena for a business meeting and Press was down the street from hotel. They were attentive from the moment I walked in the door. The food was outstanding, had the jalapeno cheeseburger from the bar menu, couldn't eat 1/2 of the amount of food given. The wine by the glass was superb. I recommended to colleagues who dined later in the week and they also had a fabulous time.
Possibly the best dinner ever
This was perhaps the best dining out experience we've every had. The tenderloin/bernaise were incredible. The chopped salad and the truffle mac and cheese were off-the-charts. And the chocolate souffle was superb. They have an incredible wine list; even their more modestly priced wines were tremendous. And the service was great.
